Blonde Ambition 2013
Madonna was in New York last night for the screening of her MDNA tour film. As you can see, she’s revived her interpretation of Marlene Dietrich, the “double drag”. (Click here for a good scholarly read on “double drag”.) Nothing but love from me on this. So much love we’re not even going to talk about the face.
When Madonna looks like this I remember Blonde Ambition. I remember the Vogue video. I remember when I worshipped her every day, at school, after school, learning her moves, memorising her interviews. So, no, sorry, I can’t hate here. I just want to watch Vogue and strike a pose.
But first... a quick PS -- the event last night was presented by Dolce & Gabbana...who’ve just been sentenced to 20 months in prison for tax evasion in Italy. Fashion jail!*
*They will likely appeal so not yet, if ever. But still!
